First of all, I must inform the uniformed that my "normal" work week is Tuesday through Friday, each day being 10 hours. Not that I ever have very many normal work weeks, I also pick up extra shifts in another department. Although my schedule being such, Tuesdays are my Mondays. Today started out Mondayish to the extreme of Hades.
I woke to the alarm blasting country at 5 AM. Not a bad start, all in all, except I meant to set it for 4 AM. So before I even had a foot hit the floor, I was an hour behind. I rushed to get things ready. This required me to cut my morning task list down to the bare minimum.
First, brew coffee. My attempt to do so ended in disaster. First off all, my eyes (I have vision issues) were not the best. It often takes a few hours of consciousness before my vision is at its peak. In my haste and fuzzy focus state, I failed to notice that I had not completed the pot from yesterday. I still poured the same amount of water into the machine. The filter collapsed, the coffee pot overflowed and my "coffee" consisted of luke-warm gritty black stuff that would not even melt the powdered creamer.
Adventures in bathing were next. In my haste, I forgot why I wanted the extra hour. I do not run my hot water tank all of the time. It, simply said would be a waste of money. I wanted to wake early to do one load of laundry and some dishes. This would have given the tank time to warm before my shower. I realized that I did not turn on the tank right after I got the shampoo in my eyes. One good thing... The cold shower certainly substituted well for the coffee maker disaster.
I did manage to get out of the house on time and the only other incident was trying to get a receipt for my gasoline purchase. Not too big of a deal but why do gas stations offer you the option of putting a card into the pump and then not bother to put paper in the printer and make you walk inside for your receipt? Rather defeats the purpose doesn't it?
